Lovely capture Kay. The B/W certainly gives the image a look of age taking us back in time. I like the expressions you have caught on the faces of the lady and gentelman. Bill J

Thank you all so very much for your encouragement; you have no idea what it means to me and what a surprise it is to see your comments. For some reason, I've received no notice from BP since Sept. 18 on responses to this image, and I was beginning to be depressed no one noticed because it's one of my favourites. So double and triple thanks, all!!
